Can we choose a write in candidate? It seems like the bow I was planning on voting for isn't here. Hope it's in next months.

BJ, it could be your contender isn't subscribed to the magazine and couldn't enter.  But you are right, there have been a lot of really nice bows posted lately on the site.

I guess I never thought of that Jeff. I sure was looking for a really sweet mollie in feathers. Your right there have been some very nice bows posted lately.

Hey BJ,
I don't know of too many "mollie in feather" bows posted lately. but if that very kind remark was directed in my direction, I'm very pleased. thank you.  But a few years ago I was asked the same question why I didn't enter in BOM. My response was...I was raised in a very competitive family with two younger brothers.  Played every sport, football, baseball, track etc. and even played at home every game/card game you can imagine.  After I left home I got into competitive bass fishing. was even thinking doing it for a living.  But life became real, I meet the best woman ever and had a family of girls.  My competitive spirit against others left and has never really returned. I still have a very competitive attitude and challenge "myself" to the limit all of the time even in my profession.  But a hobby is just that a hobby. Some day I may get involved in the BOM contests and just understand its not competition just a display of talents.
By the way,  I have been a subscriber and my subscription has run out.  I was hoping for a Christmas promotion but if there are no specials in the next month or two. I will sign up again after the first of the year.  Who knows maybe I'll inter BOM.
BJ, Thanks again for the nice thoughts.

PS..... this is the most I've said in years......:)
Till next time,
DBar

Thanks for the explanation Bill. I guess I didn't realize you didn't enter bows in the BOM. I really kinda hope you do in the future. I understand what you are saying about challenging yourself competively. I do the same thing myself. For some reason I don't really feel competitive when I enter the BOM. I know it may sound cliche but I really believe they are all winners and certainly no losers. I haven't  "won" a BOM but I certainly haven't ever felt like I lost one. You make some beautiful, well built bows and arrows Bill. That mollie in feathers sure would have had my vote. Maybe I'll get a chance to see it in person some day, but sounds like someone was on Santa's very good list. I'm sure they will love it.

Wow, I got 8 more votes than I thought I would--almost didn't vote for my own entry.  Those were some fantastic bows this go around.  I am continually in awe of the talent and beautiful work in this community.  Congratulations Leon, that was truly fine work you have done.  Keep it up.
